Child Support

Child support is important to both the receiving and the paying parent.  Child support is paid for the benefit of the children, but can cause significant conflict between parents. We represent parents in actions to establish, increase, decrease, and enforce child support.

A change in income, such as a layoff or an injury, can destroy a parent’s ability to pay child support.  Or, when times are good, a raise or transfer can increase income to the extent that a child support increase is appropriate.  We represent parents who pay child support and those who receive child support to set an amount of support that is best for the child, and meets the guidelines established by Arkansas law.
